    Higher Viscosity Oil for Knocking 3.0l?

    I've got a '98 ranger with a 3.0l and it has an obvious spun bearing. I was wondering if bumping up the oil's viscosity on the next change would help squeeze a little more life out of the motor before it kicks a rod through the block (if so, what viscosity would you recommend?). Any feedback is...

  8. '99 3.0L Water pump removal

    Hi all, I replaced my DPFE sensor a couple weeks ago. WOW! What a difference. Truck would not rev above 3200 or so. Now it will go up to 5k or so. Feels like a whole new vehicle. Friday I stumbled onto the throttle cable mod. Sure enough, even better! Can't believe how well it was running. So I...
